of these latest, you know, incidents up at sandy hook, et cetera. they want something done, they don't want this one to pass without something happening. and what is the something? is it an assault weapons ban? is it universal background checks? but i do think there is an overreaction to the president's 23 executive orders. they really weren't much -- things like, you know, ordering studies into what causes gun violence. i mean these weren't like, you know, massive grabs for power. i think this rhetoric is sort of over done. jon: the president generally does frame his battles. he cast his opponents as the republicans in congress, when it's fair to say that he's got an awful lot of democratic opposition to some of these proposals as well. >> that's true. what is happening here is this goes back to individual district, and, look, the country may be wanting more control, or some action to make guns safer, but it's different by district. in inner cities whether you're a democrat or republican gun control is much more popular. you get out in the more rural states, more rural areas and there are
and devastation we recently saw up here with hurricane sandy. >> that's correct. we kind of developed our business model with katrina and learning with katrina what we needed to do for disaster relief and response and understood back then that you had to elevate the houses using this toarl prevent flooding. and here back in our own backyard we have sandy, and still to this date we have thousands of people without homes, without jobs, you know? everybody is struggling right at this point, and we need to do something. in november we put together a seminar where we put together four points of how we needed to start to respond to this. the first point was to get worker housing, you know, using the panels we can build quickly. the second part was to give the people back some type of a home that they can get back to while their homes are being reconstructed, so we came up with an emergency response pod which is part of our safe hut division. and these are collapsible trailers that can be put in front of the homes. then we have panels that can be used as curtain molds around the existing -- uma: it's def
, that's find. we have hurricane sandy to worry about. i'm not in favor of anything. but given that, i think the media should have been fair. you can't get me on that one. jim? [laughter] jon: all right. jim? >> well, i would just say this, that, for example, the way they treated mrs. obama's clothing and the clothing of the girls and stuff, they then talked about what a great deal this is, and this is abc again last night about how wonderful it is these fashion deciphers will get rich -- designers will get rich. it was exactly the kind of thing they wouldn't have done for laura bush, barbara bush or nancy reagan -- >> whoa, whoa, nancy reagan they would have done it. >> everything she does is wonderful, and it's incredibly expensive, all the better because that's just good for jobs and the economy and some fashion designer who's lifted from obscurity. that is biased, and even you, ellen, you admit it. >> well -- jon: some differences in the ways the two parties' candidates or presidents get covered. we're going to have to leave it there. jim, ellen, thank you both. >> thank you. arthe
for disasters like sandy. it doesn't count any of that, and that goes against the $4 trillion, makes it smaller. so this is an exercise that's really riddled with budget gimmicks. and the other everyone should know is the $1.2 trillion in the so-called sequester, and who deserves credit for that is in the eye of the beholder or, but it is a law signed by the president, signed by democrats and republicans in congress. the key is it hasn't happened yet, so it's hard to count $1.3 trillion in savings for something that doesn't happen and maybe never will happen. jon: all right. let's listen to another piece of sound from the president about making our debt manageable. play it. >> that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy, but it would make it manageable. jon: that's the $4 trillion that he is talking, talking about, sg that if you can cut $4 trillion in spending, that's going to make thingsings hunky dory. is it? >> with well, no, i would say no. for the reasons doug suggests that $4 trillion isn't really $4 trillion. if it were a real $4 tril
